iPhoto 4 Visual QuickStart Guide Available in Print and PDF

Send Article to a Friend

iPhoto 4 Visual QuickStart Guide Available in Print and PDF -- This is embarrassing, but I just realized that I never mentioned that the latest version of my iPhoto book - iPhoto 4 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide - has been available for sale since the end of April (Peachpit released it right as we left for my sister's wedding in Hawaii, where I was sick the entire time - that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it!). Anyway, I've also now made the electronic version available for sale via eSellerate (alongside the electronic version of The Wireless Networking Starter Kit, Second Edition) for those who prefer PDF to print. The prices are roughly the same; the print book lists for $20 but is available for $14 via Amazon, so I set the price of the electronic edition at $14 to avoid competing with Peachpit.

Two notes: First, if you want both the print and PDF versions of the book, buy the print edition, since then you can download the PDF for free (the main difference is that the PDF has full-color screenshots). Second, if you already own my iPhoto 2 Visual QuickStart Guide, I can't in good conscience encourage you to buy this one (though I'd certainly be happy if you did). I have of course completely updated the book for iPhoto 4, adding eight pages to cover new features like smart albums, Rendezvous photo sharing, and editable film rolls, but the simple fact is that the primary improvements to iPhoto 4 were in the realm of performance, and thus didn't entail significant changes to the book. I've also moved the iPhoto book's support pages from Swiki over to a moderated discussion on our Web Crossing server so I can experiment more with managing support discussions in Web Crossing. [ACE]
